    1. Nice comparison and I agree with you that Cartagena wins. Santa Marta is more a vacation place for Colombians with much lower prices than in Cartagena. But you won’t find many gringos in Santa Marta. I like both places but prefer Cartagena with more to do and better restaurants.

      I just spent some time in Santa Marta and Taganga and the picture you display is misleading with the green enviroment. Both he cities have been in a 3 year drought and the dried up vegetation scenery is quite ugly in my estimate. For the 2-3 months I stayed there approximately 2 months ago the daytime temp was into the 90’s every day. Maybe the global weather change but you might want to mention it.

      Many folks have told me San Andreas is much nicer than Santa Marta. Does a comparison of these cities exist?
      THANK YOU!

      • San Andreas is small with a population of only about 70,000 and nobody has asked for a comparison. San Andres wouldn’t compare very well as it’s really too small.
